I'm really enjoying my time away from work. Getting in lots of me time focusing on my physical fitness activities. 3 mile run and then a 30 minute bike ride. Now to enjoy this after workout meal!

I'm going to wait this one out. The traditional convertible design has some undesirable side effects, mainly the fact the when converted, the keyboard faces out. The feeling of holding a squishy key keyboard rather the the solid back of the device seems somehow not fully thought out from a design perspective. The Google Pixel C Android tablet (Chromebooks run Chrome OS) is the perfect design. The keyboard when not in use actually detaches and magnetically snaps to the back of the tablet (keyboard facing inward). This provides a solid feel in the hands and the thoughtful planning put into the premium design language of the device is very deliberate and evident.

I'll wait for the next wave of Android capable Chromebooks which step up the convertible game...
If you haven't heard, Google announced at Google I/O that they would be bringing Google Play to Chrome OS, which means you can use all of the Android apps available on your notebook. While we're still waiting for that functionality in widespread form, at least one device has the honor of being able to enjoy it today.

I am the proud owner of a Google Pixel C tablet. I finally jumped...that and my wife being the wonderful woman she is, surprisingly informed me that I could order the device (I had a couple of months previously registered for the 25% developer discount, but never thought I'd actually use it) out of the blue. I initially struggled, over the long weekend before the scheduled delivery, with the fact that I really wanted a Pixel device, was in love with the design, but wasn't complete sure I had a real use for tablet. Two weeks in, I have settled right in with this exquisite piece of hardware, and my concerns over owning a tablet have easily melting away. It was the realization, the optional keyboard (which I ordered), completely changed how I came to interact with the tablet....and has become just enough of a convertible laptop that I actually have the best of both worlds. It also helps that Android N has arrived (in Beta anyway), with what seems like 8 months late...but very much welcomed. This article nicely summarizes my thoughts of the Google Pixel C tablet. It is a nice read, and I hope you enjoy. <Typed on the Pixel C>
Forgive the tardiness of this final post. I’ve been working. A lot. On the Pixel C. I know, right? Yes. Boom. Period. Comma. Moving on… There’s much I can say about my ongoing working relationship with Google’s apparently-already-forgotten Android productivity experiment. I’ll invest a few final words on the topic here, but I’ll begin with …

Other than to gloat (just a little) that I called the OKC/Kevin Durant saga exactly right early during the playoffs, I'm leaving this article here as a powerful message that the NBA will never be the same when Duncan retires. NBA Superstars just don't stay forever, anymore.... Props to the BEST Power Forward to EVER play the game. #TheBigFundamental
The Spurs are not just lucky to have won the Duncan sweepstakes in the 1997 lottery. They’re also extremely lucky that Duncan did what Kevin Durant and other stars in the NBA’s smaller markets have often refused to do. Duncan stayed forever.

Michael Fisher's article captures my sentiments exactly. Disregarding Google's poor marketing message for the Pixel C and the overly critical and misplaced media comparisons to the productivity market, I've come to love the device for what it is...an exceptionally well built Android tablet with extended capabilities provided by the optional keyboard. The except below says it all:

Quoted from Michael Fisher's article, "But as I wrote in our full review, the Pixel C is more a marketing and positioning failure than anything. It only looks like it’s trying to keep pace with its far-more-powerful Windows-running competition. If instead you buy it with the knowledge that what you’re getting is a very capable Android tablet (and nothing more), then it makes for a really portable, really wonderful little mobile sidekick for light work on the go. If your lifestyle is anything like mine, that’s a pretty easy thing to get behind."
Google's new convertible has taken a lot of flak from the media (Pocketnow included). But after using the Pixel C for a month, I like it enough to keep it.

I went for 5 mile walk in Stone Oak park this morning. Always enjoy the ability to move from the busy sounds of the day to being emersed into the woods so quickly as following the path from Bush Middle School and under Evans road. Captured the regular pics of the things that caught my attention. I look forward to doing this more often.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!

My family and I visited yesterday and were very happy with the experience. We intentionally chose late Sunday afternoon to avoid the crowds and were successful. The place is very clean, well-maintained and open with lots of trampolines, 2 basketball dunking stations, a foam pit and a dodgeball area...all with trampolines. The staff was very helpful and we're patrolling for inappropriate behavior. I only saw 2 adults laying down in high demand areas and would have like to see the staff have them move for the benefit of the other visitors. You are provided socks when checking in along with a wrist band. They also have lockers to place your valuables while jumping, as you wouldn't want to lose keys or a phone in a place like this...could take hours to locate them. Overall we were very pleased. I highly recommend.

My family and I were completely blown away at the great service and outstanding private pool room. The place was clean and well maintained. The kids have never played pool before and having a private room just for my large family was a perfect setting for them to learn. Since we had the room to ourselves, we got to hang out at all four corners of the room and take our food with us for each turn at play. The food was fantastic quality, with great options and perfectly delivered to our tables. We were looking for a great family outing on a Monday evening and D&B certainly delivered. We will absolutely return and so should you.

The food is consistently of high quality and the service is outstanding. We have visited this location at all hours and all days of the week. Not one bad thing to say! You can request extra fries of you are not a fan of coleslaw. I highly recommend the Box Combo!

I have been to this location previously. While not an outstanding experience, the visit was solidly good. There is usually a wait here, which indicates the popularity of the restaurant. I ordered the ChuyChanga which is one of the restaurant's specialties. Food took a bit of time to arrive, but was forgiven due to being very busy. The wait staff is friendly and helpful and the quality of food is good, just not outstanding. Then again, I'm not sure what would make a chimichanga amazing. The menu is otherwise of a Tex-Mex variety. I also enjoyed the chips with creamy jalapeño dip! The place was clean and nice and cool on a hit summer day, which was much appreciated. Overall I would visit again.

Please for the love of all things right, do NOT waist your hard earned money or valuable time waiting in the drive through for 45 mins. This location was never great, but could do in a pinch. Even that is no longer the case. The employees are poorly dressed, have no concern for appearance. I once visited this location a month ago during the day and found every employee in the store working on the manager's vehicle in the parking lot. Upon entering I was advised they would be with me in a bit. Several minutes later the manager walked in and did not wash his hands before taking my order. That was all I needed to turn around and leave. The interior is very dirty and is obviously not well maintained. The food is barely passable as palatable. The end for me was being stuck in drive though late night a few months ago for 45 mins. When I got to the window, the employee advised me that she was on the only employee working in the store and that the manager was aware. I tried calling the complaint line only to be met with an error message that the mailbox was full. I will definitely not be returning.
